Sport Manitoba has many opportunities for coaches and athletes to apply for funding. It can be through scholarships, bursaries and other funding opportunities. Some opportunities are for coaches, women only, athletes and athletes or coaches involved in post-secondary education. Please look at and apply for any that you feel you may be eligible for. These funding opportunities can be found on the Sport Manitoba Grants/Finance page (here). Please continue to check back as different programs have different application deadlines. Remember, most Sport Manitoba funding opportunities require you to be a member of your Provincial Sport Organization – in this case the MCA; just a small benefit to being a member!
